There is no reason for your tires to be louder, however, you could be hearing them more. Before you put the spacers on, much of the sound from the tires was absorbed into the felt liner and blocked by the truck. Now that you have them spaced, any tire portion poking out from the body will be much easier to hear because there is less obstruction blocking the sound waves.

This is probably true. I don't notice the change in noise anymore if there is actually any. I don't drive on highway enough to really care. If it does start to bother me I would have no problem taking them off.

I can't imagine it getting better than the HK I have now. I'm not much of an audiophile though.

Re: I Want Spacers

DallasGC - sent you a PM about links to get the spacers.

Also mine is going to be a 2016 WK2 5.7L.

Should have the truck next week.

Already ordered the Lowering links.
Appointment set for tints, and trim wrapping.

Or if anyone else can help with providing the link where to get spacers. like 1" in the front and 1.25" in the rear.. So it doesnt rub when lowered 1"

Re: I Want Spacers

I've always had Spidertrax on my pickups. Been thinking about getting them for my '15 Altitude. Question is, I do 35k miles a year. Anyone do this many miles with spacers? Want to make sure I'm not opening up a can of worms on myself.

Re: I Want Spacers

So I ordered bora spacers for my 75th Anni from Motorsport tech on Monday. For those of you who have ordered from them, anyone know a ballpark time frame for delivery?

Re: I Want Spacers

I might be selling my spacers.

I ordered them about 2 weeks ago 1.25" all around $50 each.

they would be brand new if anyone is interested. Not sure if i want to install them.
